KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 2 (Bernama) — There will be a total road closure along SPRINT highway at KM3.6 in front of Phileo Damansara and Eastin Hotel on Sunday (Sept 6) for 18 hours, from 12 midnight till 6 pm.
MMC Gamuda KVMRT deputy director Adil Putra said the road closure is to facilitate works for Phileo Damansara MRT Station entrance link bridge.
“This total closure is necessary as we need a safe working space to cater our heavy machineries that are needed for the installation works,” he told a press conference, near here today.
He said during thisclosure, motorists from Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) and Petaling Jaya heading towards Kuala Lumpur needed to make a U-turn and turn left into Jalan Tan Sew Pow and then back onto SPRINT Highway before turning into Jalan 17/21.
Motorists can choose to turn left into Jalan 17/22 before making their way to Jalan 16/6, or proceed to Jalan Universiti before joining Jalan Dato’ Abu Bakar to head back to Kuala Lumpur, and this diversion also applies to motorists from NKVE heading towards Kuala Lumpur.
While motorists from Kuala Lumpur on the SPRINT Highway heading towards Petaling Jaya, TTDI or the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) can opt to turn into Jalan Dato’ Abu Bakar and turn right into Jalan 16/16 and turn right to Jalan 17/1 to head back to Petaling Jaya.
Besides flagmen and traffic signages, there would be police traffic personnel surrounding the areas during the road closure toguide motorists, he said.
